Adult Master Class with Nik Owens
"Beginning with the body’s most basic mechanical function (walking) we will begin to pass into and out of walking improvisations and games as a means of generating warmth in the body, invigorating our senses, and beginning to understand the innate heaviness and softness of our limbs and breath. Through a follow-along continuous warmup, we will lubricate our bodies through codified stretches, some yoga-based poses, and through improvised play with how much we can throw, catch, and release our weight. The class will culminate in a phrase using principles like weighted limbs, suspension, catch, release and rebound, and curiosity of the eyes to expand spatial awareness and exploration. Come join and have fun!" - Nik Owens
